Last night it was a lot fainter, due to the Moon being brighter I suppose. Should start to get better in a week or so!

Cleared up last night, and we were able to spot it, just west of the Pleiades. Almost naked eye, nice little fuzzy spot in binocs.

Catch it now, or next time in 8000 years. [Big Grin]

Snaggy, I am afraid I have missed this one. Too many cloudy nights.
